What is a Nevada Registered Agent?
- A Nevada registered agent is appointed by the business entity to accept service of process and State/Federal mail on its behalf.
- Registered agents must have a physical location in Nevada where they accept such documents.
Why do I need a registered agent in Nevada?
- Business entities formed with the Nevada Secretary of State must appoint a registered agent.
- One of the reasons for this requirement is that lawsuits can’t move forward in court unless a business has been properly notified. Your Nevada registered agent serves as your business’ official point of contact with Nevada Secretary of State and the legal world.
- Having a professional registered agent service ensures you stay on top of any official notices or services of process for your business.
What does my Nevada registered agent do?
- Nevada is one of the nation’s most popular states for forming a business. By requiring businesses to have a registered agent, the state of Nevada accomplishes two objectives:
- The state ensures there is a viable way to contact each business, without having the hassle of tracking down an individual.
- It also is able to verify that the business received its mail or service of process, as the Nevada registered agent is legally required to notify the Nevada secretary of state if they change their address, and the registered agent must sign for any service of process he or she receives.
- Your registered agent receives all notices from the Nevada Secretary of State for filing annual renewals. The Nevada Secretary of State will call and talk to your registered agent if they have any questions about your corporation or LLC.
- As your registered agent, we can file the formation paperwork for your Nevada corporation or LLC. The advantage of having a registered agent file their paperwork is it keeps their name and personal address off the public record and we are responsible for any mistakes.
My Nevada LLC charges $125 annually to be your Nevada Registered Agent which includes a physical and mailing address, forwarding all State and Federal mail, filing annual renewal documents, and the use of our mailing address on public record.
